No Doubt to auction off memorabilia for charity
HollywoodNews.com: No Doubt is busy recording their new album, but in the meantime they are taking some time to clean out their closets and help a few good causes at the same time.
The band will be putting some costumes and vintage memorabilia on an online auction. Some of the items include instruments, out of print vinyl, as well as a tuxedo from drummer Adrian Young.
Lead singer Gwen Stefani said, “The tour last summer was so amazing, it was exactly what we needed to inspire the new record. Now that we’re in the studio we wanted do something special for the fans who did so much for us. It’ll be really fun to share the costumes – they’re wicked. A lot of the stuff was really hard to part with, but the money we’ll be able to raise, together with the fans, will be worth it. These charities need us, badly. It means a lot to us as a band to be able to support all the hard work they do.”
Guitarist Tom Dumont added, “This auction is a really big deal to me personally, because I’m letting go of two really prized, iconic guitars in the hopes of raising as much money as possible for charity. In my history with No Doubt, the guitars I played in our music videos are the rarest and most valuable things I own. Please contact your richest friend’s Dad and tell him please go BIG on these auction items!”
The auction will take place from June 1-11 and 100% of proceeds will be shared between the following four charities:
Animal Acres – a paradise for farmed animals and the people who love them
charity: water – a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
The ALS Association – encourages scientific research to find a cure for ALS (also known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease”)
Children’s Hospital of Orange County – a regional pediatric health care hospital which provides preventive medical care, education, and state-of-the-art pediatric biomedical research.
